An agreement by Marceiu Vinnen, parishioner of Landes, a small town near Caen in the Calvados region of Normandy, to pay a yearly and perpetual rent of 15 bushels of barley (orge), one hen (geline), and 10 eggs to Pierre Renou, parishioner of Tournay (also in Calvados). The agreement is dated 1 October 1397 at the end of the text. The text is written in a secretary script and takes up 21 lines of 28 ruled lines; the lines are ruled in lead. There is an unidentifiable signature below the writing most likely belonging to a notary who oversaw the conclusion of the agreement. The reverse side of the parchment has writing in multiple hands.
